Located on a ridge overlooking Chyulu Hills and the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge offers an ideal base from which to explore the Kenyan wilderness. The lodge has been built from volcanic stone and blends in perfectly with its rugged landscape. Kilaguni Serena is ideal for families, and offers a child-friendly environment with kiddies’ activities, special menus and a baby-sitting service. Kilaguni is the first lodge to be built in a Kenyan National Park, placing it in a prime wildlife viewing position.

With a waterhole only 100m away, you'll be able to spot elephant, buffalo and many other plains game from the comfort of the restaurant and viewing deck. Enjoy a range of exciting excursions in the park, like game drives, guided walks, bird watching and volcanic climbs. A trip to the Mzima Springs, a set of crystal clear ponds of melt water from Mount Kilimanjaro, is also a memorable activity as is a visit to the Rhino Sanctuary.

Kilaguni is probably best known for the waterhole here - mostly you see quite a lot of game but not always! As with all Serena properties you can expect good service, friendly smiles and a good meal.

Rooms at Kilaguni are spacious, comfortable and offer all the amenities expected from a modern safari lodge. Built from volcanic stone and decorated in neutral tones, rooms enjoy views of either the waterhole or the Chyulu Hills - one of the world's youngest volcanic ranges.Each standard room is tastefully decorated and surrounded by tranquil gardens.

Relax in the library, browsing through the collection of Africana books, or play one of the many board games with your family. The open-air, rock-built bar overlooks the waterhole and features comfortable day beds with glorious views of the Chyulu Hills.


The central dining area at Kilaguni has a thatched roof and is open to one side, providing a cool breeze and views over the waterhole.
